Cosmetic Injectables – Botox®

Cosmetic Injectables – Botox®

08/10/17

Have you imagined what it would be like to have that youthful, fresh face look again? Botox® is a smart and safe alternative to cosmetic surgeries. With minimal discomfort and no downtime, Botox® cosmetic injectables are a popular choice for both men and women, helping millions smooth their fine lines and wrinkles.

 

What Is a Botox® Cosmetic Injectable?

Botulinum toxin is an injectable neurotoxin which is used to smooth wrinkles formed by frowning, squinting, or smiling. This anti-aging treatment blocks nerve impulses to the muscles, causing them to relax. You will notice a softer appearance with effects lasting up to three to four months.

 

What Are the Benefits of Botox® Cosmetic Injectables?

Botox® targets one of the underlying causes of frown lines and crow’s feet, the repeated muscle contractions from doing things such as; frowning and squinting over the years. Your clinician will inject these muscles with Botox® to temporarily reduce the muscle activity. Within 4-5 days, you will begin to notice a visible smoothing of your forehead, crow’s feet and frown lines between your brows with full effects noticeable in 14 days.

For a fraction of the cost of some traditional surgical procedures, Botox® injectables will enhance your natural beauty, and will have you looking your best!

 

What Should I Expect?

Your clinician will evaluate you and prepare you for the treatment. The needles used are very short and thin, causing minimal pain and discomfort, so there is no need for anesthesia. Several injections may be required to deliver the desired results. The most common side effects are mild bruising, swelling or redness, which will resolve quickly.

You will be able to return to your normal activities right after treatment, but your clinician may ask you to avoid strenuous activities and to keep your head in the upright position for the rest of the day. The full results are typically reached within a few weeks after your treatment.
